Now the country is restoring and carrying out maintenance of three Leopard 2 tanks, which will go to Kyiv next month.
Portugal will deliver three of its own Leopard 2 tanks to Kyiv in March. This is what Prime Minister Antonio Costa said in a speech to parliament on Wednesday, February 8, Reuters reports.
“Now we are implementing a plan for the restoration and maintenance of Leopard 2 tanks and, according to the plan, we will be able to send three of them in March. This is what we are doing,” Costa told parliamentarians.
He said last week that Portugal was in talks with Germany to get parts needed to repair the malfunctioning Leopard tanks in service in the country.
Costa emphasized that the transfer of tanks to Ukraine will not endanger the reserves of the Portuguese army.
It was previously reported that Portugal will transfer armored personnel carriers and generators to Ukraine.
